I have 2 IDE Zip drives. They are a bit crotchety and the jumper settings
undocumented, but I have it working as an only drive and have also booted
off of them successfully. I don't think any special kernel support is
needed unless there should be some better hooks for removable media. If so
they might well be useful on the SCSI side too.
